Margaret Seymour is interested in a broad range of contemporary media and art practice. Inspired by new methods and materials for art making, she has a strong interest in digital art objects, specifically the way they transform our experience of space and time. Combining experimental approaches with more established techniques, she creates objects and installations that echo some of the temporal and spatial displacements we experience living in an electronically connected world. Recent works include Tracker (2013), Remote Sensing (2014) and Solar Echo (2014), an environmental artwork exhibited in La Lune: Energy Producing Art on Long Reef Headland.
Margaret Seymour won the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize 2011 and received an Australia Council New Work grant in 2012. She has over fifteen years of experience teaching undergraduate students and supervising higher degree research candidates.
